At this tasting session, we tried most of the new signature items.
Seared tuna, cauliflowers, almonds, hazelnut oil, lemon dressing:
Not many salads have hazelnuts so this was a real treat.
The cauliflower was nice and soft and there were crispy pieces of bread that add crisp to the salad.
Slow cooked cod fish, mixed capers, shallots, lemon, fried garlic and herbs:
The cod is sliced thinly and tasted really nice with the salad.
The red leaves in the salad gave it a nice visual touch.
Portobello mushrooms, castelmagno cheese, artichoke, mint and fava beans:
The mushroom was nicely grilled and extremely juicy, the cheese was very crumbly and floury but not that cheesy.
Polpette meat balls with extra rich tomato sauce, rice shaped pasta and chopped parsley:
The tomato sauce was rich and tangy too with lots of parsley too and paired nicely with the minced meat balls.
“Cacio e pepe” spaghetti, black pepper, pecorino cheese and olive oil:
It is similar to the chinese taro nest made of grated taro, but here it was grated cheese made into a bowl.
Blue mussels, white wine, onion and parsley:
The white wine sauce was full of flavour and made every mussel a star.
Peaches, Galliano syrup, whipped vanilla cream and almonds:
To end the gorgeous meal, this dessert was light and dreamy especially the whipped vanilla cream and the crunchy almonds.
Affogatto, Italian lady finger bisciuits, orange mascarpone:
This was delicious and the alcohol in this was really strong and the affogatto concoction was extremely creamy.
Honey figs margarita:
When it came, it was pink garnished with a sprig of mint on top.
I was worried it would be quite sweet but it turned out really nice with crushed figs at the bottom of the drink.
The drink was really refreshing and not syrupy followed by the lovely fizzyness of the carbonated water.
Home marinated limes, cinnamon, cloves, cane sugar:
For cinnamon lovers, the cinnamon taste and smell is strong and very different to cinnamon powder.
They serve a whole cinnamon stick/quill in the drink.
Tea by Forte:
Compared to my previous visit, the tea is now served in a ceramic cup and not in a tall glass which is an improvement and brings out the full tea flavour.
Fiat is part of the Swire group where they take catering seriously, and it is really nice to have casual Italian food every now and again in a fun environment.
However for improvements, the table could be more spacious.
The salt and pepper grinders and the cutlery holder seem to take up some space on the table.
Since my last visit, this seems to be the only improvement I want to see because their food is great.
